Online Taxes

Taxes will be calculated automatically for users from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe. The taxes are calculated automatically based on the store's location and customer's location. At the time of checkout the customer's tax rate will be calculated according to their country and regional tax rules.
We know that tax laws are constantly changing. Country, state or even city government may apply new tax rates that a business owner is expected to keep up with and TAKU eCommerce will do its best to stay up-to-date on the tax law based on your jurisdiction. It is also recommended that you have a qualified accountant review your tax settings prior to publishing your online store to make sure that they comply with the latest sales tax obligations for e-commerce sales.

There are two ways to set up taxes for your TAKU eCommerce store

  • Automatic taxes. They are available for merchants in the USA, the EU, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Automatic taxes provide up-to-date standard rates across the store.
  • Manual taxes. If automatic taxes are not available for your country or you sell differently taxed products, you can configure taxes manually.
